From My Computer right click on your DVD drive and select properties and from there select Hardware.
Highlight your drive and again select properties. If it says your drive is working OK try using the troubleshooter from the appropriate button shown.

Also check from "properties" that Autoplay is enabled.

Apart from all the hardware checks as suggested, try a CD disk cleaner disk- the laser may be just a little sooty.
